Hey there, welcome to my home on the Internet 👋
I'm Karthik Puvvada, often called 'KP' by friends and my audience on the Internet. I'm a founder, creator and coach based out of Atlanta. I’m the founder of Build In Public Studio, a content and consulting company aimed at helping create more successful founders in the world.
Previously, I worked as a Program Director at Day One, a premier founder school backed by Gary Vee and Antler Ventures.
Before that, I’ve built several global entrepreneurial communities (including On Deck No-Code Fellowship) from scratch to $1m in revenue. Since 2018, I have also launched 15+ businesses and side-projects using no-code tools (some of which have been acquired!).
I’ve cultivated an audience of over 38,000 on Twitter and 7,000 on email by building my career in public. On the side, I’ve been an angel investor and advisor/coach to world-class startup founders.

He is also an angel investor in early-stage startups and advices/coaches world-class founders from YC and On Deck. His investments include Softr, Stoa, Airboxr, Cal.com, and more.
He gained popularity as the “Build In Public” guy on the Internet after building and shipping 13+ no-code projects all publicly on Twitter since 2018 garnering thousands of users. His favorite projects include DoThingsThatDontScale, Cuppa, LetterDrop, No-Code Cheat Sheet, and Build In Public.

What people say about me:
“KP has had massive impact on so many builders in the no-code space. I wouldn't have known about no-code if it weren't for a meetup he hosted a few years ago.” — Lola

“You are the beacon of real authentic value to a community… in the form of content, community building, thought leadership, and uplifting of others.” - Vriti
“Meeting with KP was a game changer for helping me with strategy around building in public and growing my business. He was an early believer and helped me see a path of how to execute that I am using today. We sat down and looked through my current distribution channels and how to exploit them. It was a major confidence boost for me to have an ally like KP. When you’re a Founder I’ve learned how alone you can feel. Having insights and passion poured into you to help my journey is something I’m very grateful for. “ - Michael
